School Information

Huffaker Elementary School is a K-6 school in the Washoe County School District in Reno, Nevada.  The needs of more than 550 students are supported each day through differentiated, engaging classroom instruction and positive behavioral support.  Alongside classroom teachers, a special education teacher, school counselor, school psychologist, speech and language therapists, occupational therapist, and an ELL teacher provide additional support so that all our students can meet the standards established by the state of Nevada.  A comprehensive music program invites students to participate in fine and performing arts enriching their elementary learning experiences.  A clinical aide with the support of a school nurse oversees the health of our students during the school day.  The history of Huffaker School is depicted in a large scale mural in Center Court, and a short walk away, the original Huffaker School House stands on the grounds of Bartley Ranch Regional Park. 

Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Children are welcome on the playground at 9:10 each morning when supervision begins.  The opening bell rings at 9:25 am, and teachers greet their students at their assigned meeting area.  School begins at 9:30 am and concludes at 3:30 pm.  At 3:30 pm all students exit through their wing doors to meet siblings, parents, or guardians as they leave for home.  We ask that you respect our traffic rules as students exit the building.  These rules are in place to keep our walkers and drivers safe!

Visitors and Volunteers

We welcome you to visit or volunteer in our school.  All visitors and volunteers must sign in at that front office and state their purpose.  We ask that you remain true to your purpose as not to interrupt the learning environment and keep all our children safe.  Volunteers are required, each year, to complete a school volunteer application available in the main office.  Volunteers may begin volunteering two weeks after the appllication has been submitted.  We thank you in advance for your support in educating the children at Huffaker Elementary!
